This hotel has always been one of my favorites in the country. As someone who's traveled full-time for the past six years I have lots of memories here. Since the last year this hotel has been renovated and I don't like it.
They appeared to be trying to get a certain quantity of the boutique hotel crowd. I liked the furniture that was in there before: big overstuffed couch and chairs, extremely comfortable.
The worse thing about this hotel now, and somewhat before, is the lighting system. The light switches aren't the kind you're used and you never know what each light switch to use. It might turn on every light in the suite or just turn on the light nearest the switch. It took me forever to figure out how to turn on the big chrome light over the sofa, it had a footpedal that was black, sitting on a black tile floor. Given that I was trying to do this at night, it was pretty much impossible to see.
Despite all this, still one of my favorite places, so much better and more interesting than the Seawall side of the island.
